Kordes Roses for Southern California

These roses are just now impinging on my consciousness, probably because I had always assumed they were meant for colder areas, and therefore gave them short shrift.

Some of them, however, seem to be quite beautiful and the flowers at least have more of an old-rose look, and I'm beginning to wonder if their reputed toughness and disease resistance might give them an advantage in a warmer climate too. One question I have is whether the foliage and habit as a whole look too modern and would be out of place in my country garden.

Has anyone tried them successfully in a warmer and dry garden? I'd love to hear your comments.
